iTHES FY2014 started !

Welcome to the first issue of the iTHES Newsletter in FY2014. Since iTHES researchers are the real core of our iTHES Research Group (http://www.riken.jp/en/research/labs/rg/inter_theor_sci/ ), I list their names in FY2014 below. Also I would like to announce that three iTHES researchers in FY2013 have moved to various places as assistant prof. or research scientist:

  • Pulak Kumar Ghosh (-> Assistant Prof., Presidency Univ., India),
  • Konstantin Bliokh (-> Research Scientist, RIKEN),
  • Norihiro Iizuka (-> Assistant Prof., Osaka Univ.).
  • Congratulations, Pulak, Konstantin and Norihiro, and please keep in touch with us as iTHES graduates!

  • Person of the Week

    Nodoka Yamanaka

    Hello, this is Nodoka Yamanaka, I am working as a researcher of the iTHES project from april 2014. I am mainly interested in the nuclear and particle physics, especially in the quantum chromodynamics and in the study of new physics beyond the standard model.

    During the PhD course, I studied the phenomenology of the supersymmetry, one of the candidate of new physics beyond the standard model, using the electric dipole moment of various systems, a sensitive observable of the CP violation of new physics. Last year, I have studied the structure of the nucleon using nonperturbative methods. Recently, I am interested in the analysis of the electric dipole moment of few-nucleon systems. I am also interested in the study of the nucleon structure using lattice QCD simulation.

    I would be pleased if I could extend the applicability of my work to a wide area of science.
